Why We Love This

This intriguing machine, by the Imperial Typewriter Company of Leicester, first appeared in 1915 and features a curved QWERTY keyboard, a removable and changeable downstrike typebasket, a backspace lever, two keys for capitals, figures and punctuation, and a shift key that when pressed, moves the entire type basket instead of just the platen. The stunning typewriter is housed in its original domed leather carrying case, embossed with the initials “M. D. J.-H.” Circa 1915.
